Milwaukee School of Engineering designates certain student information as public or “directory information.” Such information may be disclosed by the university without written consent of the student at the discretion of the institution.
Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of directory information. Forms requesting the withholding of directory information are available online or in the Registrar’s Office. Directory information will then be withheld indefinitely until the Registrar’s Office receives a written revocation of the request for nondisclosure.
The university assumes that failure on the part of any student to make a specific request for the withholding of directory information indicates individual approval for disclosure.
MSOE receives many requests for directory information from many sources including family members, friends, prospective employers, insurance companies, graduate schools, government agencies, etc. Consider very carefully the consequences of any decision by you to prohibit disclosure of directory information. Regardless of the effect upon the student, MSOE assumes no liability as a consequence of honoring instructions that directory information be withheld.
Directory information includes:
- Telephone numbers
- E-mail address
- Grade level
- Dates of attendance
- Enrollment status (full time, part time, withdrawn, not enrolled)
- Degrees and honors received
- Participation in officially recognized sports and activities
- Previously attended institutions
- Class schedule
- Photographic, video or electronic images
- Program and promotional materials for school-related materials such as athletics, extra-curricular activities and academic competitions
Please note that non-disclosure of directory information will prohibit the MSOE Marketing and Public Affairs Department from submitting student awards, dean’s list rolls, graduation and similar information to students’ hometown newspapers unless a separate MSOE Hometown News Release Form has been submitted to the Registrar’s Office.
